Anticipation is high as the bowling ball rolls down the lane. It makes contact, pins scatter and the crowd erupts... it's a strike!
The Burnaby located TELUS Centre Training Team is gearing up for their second consecutive year in The Bowl for Big Brothers Classic taking place at Lower Mainland bowling centres between February 15 - April 8, 2009.
"In my new role as Manager, I wanted to create a team atmosphere and the Big Brothers bowling event was in line with our company strategy," explains Yaseen Khan, Company Captain for the TELUS Training Centre. "We had a great turn out with 50 people participating and together we raised over $5,000."
